A motorcade among participating local government offices, national agencies, non-government organizations (NGOs) and other stakeholders from Pettit Barracks downtown to the Southcom Elementary School will precede the launching program.

Arriola said this year's celebration is anchored on the theme: "Working together for a rabies-free Zamboanga City -- Practice Responsible Pet Ownership."

Meanwhile, Arriola's office has conducted a Valentine's Day vaccination of dogs in Barangay Pasonanca.

He said the vaccination is part of the efforts of his office to minimize, if not eradicate, cases of rabies in the city.
